ATTRIBUTION THERAPY

refers to a form of therapy in which the therapist tries to modify a client's attributions of events and behavior. For example, for a depressed person, good events must be attributed to the self to boost mood.

ATTRIBUTION THERAPY: "The person participated in attribution therapy because he or she found that he or she constantly blamed his- or herself every time an unavoidable event occurred."
